With UA's purchase of PA's Pacific Division 23 years ago, how many Pan Am'rs are still at UA? Or for that matter, how many Pan Am'rs are still with Delta? Any experiences (espectially during the transition) and any comments comparing PA with UA and PA with DL would be most welcome!

john,
have met quite a few that commute to lax and tend to do the lax-oz flts....i know of 3 that were ex pa that came over with the lhr transition..i have listened to countless stories by them and delayed a flt by a few minutes to listen to the end of the story, it is like a aviation history lesson with them, 2 just took the early out and the other still continues but a great piece of history was gone when juans airline was pieced out....

United also ended up with tons of Europeans following the LHR purchase in 90.

Tell me about it ... although I haven't had the pleasure of meeting any ex-PA staff I would certainly love to hear their stories. I suppose I was fortunate enough to have flown PA twice as a child in the late 80s, even by then the airline had seen big changes.

Fortunately there are still a few ex-BOAC crew gracing the skies at BA, and their stories really are absolutely fascinating ... especially the layovers and parties they had in places like ANC etc.

I flew PA a lot in the 1970s and 1980s to Europe and domestic US. Haven't had the chance to talk with cabin crew that were ex-PA. Flying back home in Dec on UA from HKG to the US, maybe I'll get lucky and get an ex-PA crew member...will have to ask...

There's at least one former BOAC flight attendant here in the United States, now flying for Midwest. I met her this summer while commuting through MSP, and she had some very interesting stories and thoughts on the changes in aviation.



It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems with just potatoes.

A friend of mine, no longer flying for a living, flew for British Caledonian. You're right, the stories are priceless.

Good for her! The UD is my favorite place to fly by far.

More than you would think! Commuted home last week ATL-PBI : FA's were LAX based.... two of which were former PA - one hired in 1974. I'm sure the numbers are dwindling.... but there a more than a few former PA FA's ( at least two I can think of who started with National....) who are still part of the team. So many legacies... happily working under one widget!

There are still many former PA flight attendants out there flying for UA and DL. UA's LHR and FRA domiciles both have a couple of former PA FA's which came over to UA when they purchased PA's LHR routes. And DL's JFK hub has still tons of former Pan Amers.

Also, don't forget that LH has quite a large number of former PA flight attendants who were all based at TXL at the time when LH purchased PA's Berlin route authorities. About 300 came over to LH and there are still many around. I love flying and working with them. Many are still based in TXL but som transferred to other bases and we also have a couple of former PA flight attendants flying ot of FRA now.

Best regards
